Description

Position at Mashable

Mashable is hiring an experienced and enthusiastic Assistant Reviews Editor to help expand our product reviews and growth initiatives. 

We’re looking for someone who is eager to be hands-on with editorial work — managing spreadsheets, helping craft editorial calendars, editing, writing, and production work — while also having the ability to present big ideas for cross-team efforts. The assistant editor will have a keen eye for new gadgets in the consumer tech space — you’re who your friends go to for product recommendations. This position will work closely with the Reviews Editor to ensure the Reviews content hub is streamlined across Mashable. 

This role is highly collaborative, working with freelancers, other writers and editors, and other teams across the Mashable brand. Communication and organizational skills are essential for success. It’s a great opportunity to flex your strategic editorial skillset. 

A typical day might include coordinating product shipping of earbuds to a freelancer, editing a service journalism piece about consumer tech, writing a personal review of a new workout device, and ensuring the reviews strategy is aligning with our evergreen and commerce initiatives. 

The Assistant Reviews Editor will report to Mashable’s Reviews Editor.
